Day Camp

About Day Camp

Day Camp gives girls the opportunity to experience the great outdoors in a five-day camp session. Girl Scouts of Ohio’s Heartland hosts day camps at sites throughout our council. Most Day Camp hours are 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., Monday through Friday. daycamp

The fun-filled days include flag ceremonies, songs, games, archery, crafts, camp fire cooking, and some sites are able to offer canoeing and swimming.

Day Camp is available to all girls who have completed kindergarten and up (Non-Girl Scouts may attend if they become registered members). Girls can register individually or with a buddy, but Day Camp is not a troop activity. There are also opportunities for teenage girls to complete leadership hours as a Day Camp PAL (Program Aide Leader) or APL (Advanced Program Leader).
